Power connections The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. Alternatives available with variations in these parameter s: Since the input voltage to the driver can be significantly higher than the coil voltage, the measured current on the power supply can be quite a bit lower than the coil current the driver and coil basically act like a switching step-down power supply. Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. Also, if the supply voltage is very high compared to what the motor needs to achieve the set current, the duty cycle will be very low, which also leads to significant differences between average and RMS currents.

Unipolar motors with five leads cannot be used with this driver. Note that the STEP and DIR pins are not pulled to any particular voltage internally, so you should not leave either of these pins floating in your application. Several alternatives are available for this product.

The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product. This should be done with the motor holding a fixed position i. One way to maximize stepper motor performance is allegr use as high of a voltage as is practical for your application. Another way to set the current limit is to calculate the reference voltage that corresponds to your desired current limit and then adjust the current limit potentiometer until you measure that voltage on the VREF pin.

The headers can be soldered in for use with solderless breadboards or 0. A microstepping driver such as the A allows higher resolutions by allowing intermediate step locations, which are achieved by energizing the coils with intermediate current levels. A version of this board with headers already installed is also available.
The A supports such active current limiting, and the trimmer potentiometer on the board can be used to set the current limit. For customers interested in higher volumes at lower unit costs, we offer a bulk-packaged version without header pins and a bulk-packaged version with header pins lalegro.
More steper, rewiring anything while it is powered is asking for trouble. Step and microstep size Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e.

Otherwise, the intermediate current levels will not be correctly maintained, and the motor will skip microsteps. The coil current can be very different from the power supply current, so you should not use the current measured at the power supply to set the current limit. For details about these power states, see the datasheet.

R CS is the current sense resistance; original versions of this board used 0. Please note that measuring the current draw at the power supply will generally not provide an accurate measure of the coil current. The MP carrier can deliver up to 1.
This carrier board uses low-ESR ceramic capacitors, which makes it susceptible to destructive LC voltage spikesespecially when using power leads longer than a few inches. Also, if the supply voltage is very high compared to what the motor needs to achieve the set current, the duty cycle will be very low, which also leads to significant differences between average and RMS currents.
Power connections The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. The following picture shows how to identify which current sense resistors your board has:. Take care when handling this product and other components connected to it.
This product ships with all surface-mount components—including the A driver IC—installed as shown in the product picture. This product can get hot enough to burn you long before the chip overheats. Motor connections Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper alpegro in detail.
This board ships with 0. Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail. Stwpper newer A offers overcurrent protection and has an internal k pull-down on the MS1 microstep selection pin, but it is otherwise virtually identical to the A The VREF pin voltage is accessible on a steppdr that is circled on the bottom silkscreen of the circuit board.
The appropriate place to put your current meter is in series with one of your stepper motor coils.
